Investment fund projects
We have many different completed and ongoing investment fund projects and we continue to invest in projects led by our partners. Our investment allows us to invest in key projects. Over £1.5 million of the fund was allocated for four health and social care programmes across Thames Valley in 2014/15. Each programme is a collaborative partnership between local authorities, CCGs and provider organisations. The programmes complement key strategic programmes of work captured in the local health and wellbeing strategy, Better Care Fund plans and the wider transformational programmes in place across all of the Thames Valley. Through the programmes we have actively supported the development of the health and social workforce delivering integrated person-centred care.
Over 60 investment fund projects were led by our partners and some of the complex programmes are still ongoing. Our Annual Conferences in 2014 and 2015 also provided us with a platform to display the varied and innovative work that is taking place across Thames Valley.We are now supporting the project leads to evaluate the outcomes and realise the benefits of undertaking the work. We will support service transformation at scale and pace through more targeted investment in our existing workforce to adapt, learn new skills and innovate to support new models of care.
